Overview

Sony/Legacy's Box Set Series presents this four-disc anthology of country legend Merle Haggard's years with Epic Records. This is the exact same collection that appeared in 2010 in a more concise three-disc version and again features the remastering work of engineer Vic Anesini. Spanning from his 1981 signing with the label to his departure for Curb Records in 1989, the set covers a creatively prolific (if not commercially successful) period for the artist. Following his '70s peak years, his record deal with Epic finally allowed him more creative control over his recordings, making this set something of a more personal showcase for Haggard.
